, hi, there, thomas. it seemed like forget hope for getting a big deal done in the arena of $4 tril john lion in tt decade was dwindling, but republicans would not accept a deal that big and they wanted $2 trillion over the next decade, but as you mentioned president obama came out today swinging, upping the ante saying he does indeed want a big deal done and if not now, when? and he essentially tried to assume the position of the adult in the room calling on the lawmakers to rip off the band-aids and eat the peas and call to action for democrats and republicans and calling the democrats to come to the table for entitlement reforms, and the republicans for rolling back the tax breaks for wealthy americans and big corporations, and it seemed like at the last of last week, the president and the speaker boehner may have been moving in the same direction, but then speaker boehner said we cannot support anything that looks like a tax increase. and so the president addressed that in his conversation today, and he said that any tax brea increases would not take effect immediately. >> when

, people of the big banks were summoned to the meeting at a federal reserve bank here in new york and cnbc's bertha coombs has details for us. >> investors who buy u.s. treasuries buy them through banks, and this morning the treasury asked those bankers and dealers who help to sell the treasuries to investors to come in and talk about the situation as the debt ceiling limit looms. it was a regularly scheduled meeting, because on wednesday is normally the day that the treasury would announce the next action of debt, but obviously, that comes after the deadline. from bankers we talked to and senior treasury officials, they didn't really outline any contingency plans about what would happen if the debt ceiling deadline is not extended. a number of bankers have told me they anticipate what would happen is that those debt auctions would likely be postponed. we saw it happen back in 1995 when the government was shutdown. it was postponed for several weeks in terms of the auction, because essentially, if the government doesn't have the authority to increase that, then the treasury can't issue mor
